In the past, my research has mainly evolved around Environmental Justice and social vulnerabilities to hazards. From the EJ, perspective, I have conducted research in the US as well as in Australia using mixed methods. I have also participated in research projects examining the relationship between Hispanic immigration and crime at the neighborhood level. Currently, I am interested in migration to the US from Mexico, Mexican family life, and I am working on a project that will measure health outcomes for individuals in Mexico based on skin color stratification.
